Hate Has No Home Here

Renton has joined a nationwide movement and local organizations to launch the Hate Has No Home Here campaign that identifies locations free from hateful behavior.

The Hate Has No Home Here campaign is part of a movement that began in a Chicago neighborhood characterized by its diversity of age, race, nationality, and ethnicity.

Places displaying the Hate Has No Home Here signs signify that hateful actions against others are not tolerated by that person, business, or organization.

Residents, businesses, and visitors will see banners, posters, and flyers around Renton. The city is working with community partners to place Hate Has No Home Here banners at popular locations like the Renton Farmers Market, downtown, the Highlands, and in parks and other locations throughout the city. The city has launched a social media campaign and encouraged community participation. The campaign includes Hate Has No Home Here signs which include some of Renton’s most popular languages.

What does the city’s Hate Has No Home Here campaign mean?
Watch as city leaders and residents respond.

Hate Has No Home Here is a companion program to Renton Police Department’s Safe Place initiative and Say No To Hate Crimes program.
